During recent years, literary texts in electronic and networked media have
been a focal point of literary scholarship, using varying terminology. In
this book, the contributions of internationally renowned scholars and
authors from Germany, USA, France, Finland, Spain and Switzerland review the
ruptures and upheavals of literary communication within this context. The
articles in the book focus on questions such as: In which literary projects
can we discover a new quality of literariness? What are the terminological
and methodological means to examine these literatures? How can we
productively link the logics of the play of literary texts and their
reception in the reading process? What is the relationship of literary
writing and programming?
